Experience

As an actor, I have always used my voice in a host of different ways, however audio recording was not the main one.

My first experience with voice recording was at college/high school at the age of 17. I was taking a module in music technology and learning how to use VST technology while recording live music.

At drama school I learned voice acting and radio and always kept a keen interest in it until recently when I decided to take it up professionally. In Dubai I was asked to provide the presenting voice for an award ceremony. I enjoyed it and remembered how I used to like radio acting. From there I decided to get my own equipment and start recording again.

Since then I started working professionally as a voice artist in Dubai. I keep practiced and ready as most of the time jobs appear out of nowhere and being polished is key for a quick and steady turnaround.

I'm looking forward to building up a library of voices while pitching for jobs via voices.com and fine tuning myself as a polished professional.
